Dialdehyde sesquiterpenes and other terpenoids as vanilloids.

Abstract

Selected naturally occurring unsaturated dialdehyde sesquiterpenes and related bioactive terpenoids were assayed for vanilloid-like activity. Out of the 25 compounds tested, eight inhibited completely the specific binding of [3H]resiniferatoxin by rat spinal cord membranes: binding affinities ranged from 0.6 microM for cinnamodial to 19.0 microM for… (More)
